, victor, a u.s. official tells cnn the fbi was investigating a tip that david petraeus was involved in an extramarital affair with paula broadwell. she is his biographer. broadwell spent a year with petraeus in afghanistan interviewing him for the book she co-wrote about him. it's not clear whether broadwell is the woman with whom petraeus has admitted to having this affair that led to this resignation. the official says that the fbi counterintelligence unit investigated the tip to see if there was a potential security risk, whether petraeus could possibly be blackmailed. the official tells cnn there was no suggestion the fbi was investigating petraeus for any possible wrongdoing, but the concern, rather, was that he might be putting himself in a vulnerable position. >> we know that a lot of the questions from online that i've read, some of the comments on cnn.com, there's questions about the timing. let's start with what it comes after, the presidential election. what if we found out about that connection, if any, and why this comes just days after the election? >> reporter: well,

the economy. probably ain't gonna happen. but still cnn contributors will cain and roland martin are going to address that. they join me now. welcome, gentlemen. >> that was a funny skit. >> wasn't it funny? >> that was funny. >> i have this great idea, roland. why doesn't president obama appoint mitt romney as his secretary of business? >> right. >> seriously. right. that's really going to happen. first of all, we have a secretary of business. it's called the commerce secretary. normally that's the person who handles that sort of stuff. bottom line is people keep talking about what president barack obama needs to do. the fundamental problem with getting something done in washed is not with president obama. it's whether speaker john boehner can keep his republican caucus under control. tea party members last time, most of them freshmen, scuttled a lot of things that could have been done. that's the real issue. i do believe the president and speaker boehner can have a good relationship, certainly much better than senator mcconnell. can speaker boehner get his own troops in line? that's the

dominant that by the time john adams signed, john and cnn's becomes president, he's a democrat. he's completely left the federalist fold. the federalist party is essentially dead. what happened then was the rest of andrew jackson on the democratic arty, much more as we know it today and became for a little while a single party except there were those in the country who are really opposed to jackson and this became the assets of the whig party. it wasn't so much a political party as an anti-jackson party and the whigs came along and henry clay perhaps, if we want to talk about forgotten people from an 18th century, henry clay isn't so much forgotten, but overlooked because he never became president. perhaps the most prominent american at this time he didn't become president. since from the subject of elections and scandal, there is a pamphlet produced when henry clay was running against james polk and said 21 reasons why henry clay should not be elected. reason number two was he spends his days at the gaming tables and his nights at the brothel. so anyone who still thinks it was nic

those are things were going to have to stand here in congress. >> deidre walsh with cnn. just wondering since the election, speaker boehner has talked repeatedly about wanting to negotiate a deal with the president on the fiscal cliff and he said he's open to new revenue and talk about when us to compromise. was wondering what you think of his position on this issue and if you're all going to support him this afternoon? >> well, i don't know if you here earlier when i talked about attend one deal but i want to see if you but i want to see the democrats tell me where they're willing to do. all effort for the last two or three days is the democrats are saying they're not willing to get anything. in fact, the president had a meeting last night at the white house with the labor unions, with all these different liberal groups, and everyone of those those groups told the president that he should not deliver anything on reforms over entitlement system, but he should ensure that he delivers a tax increase. i don't think they're open-minded in any way so i think we as republicans if you start ne
. i just happened to catch the comments he made on cnn last night. he was very grateful to the tennis feeding vehicles he had seen just after his press conference. -- the 10 vehicles. we appreciate any out reached to let people know what we are working on in staten island. we are in tottenville, hugenot, and we are all over there. we're continuing to build on that. again, a quick summary. in new york, a massive feeding effort under way on long island with fixed feeding sites in nassau and sussex with more coming. s.i., queens, brooklyn, the bronx, manhattan, and the two on long island. 40 shelters, but i think you are most concerned with beating capacity. -- feeding capacity. we have already shipped 307,000 meals into new york. for new jersey, we also have 30 shelters open in the garden state and we have four mobile kitchens that are capable of 80,000 meals per day with another 350,000 ready-to-eat meals already there. both cases include kosher meals. there are disturbing food as well. we are stealing of the full resources of our feeding capabilities in all of the impacted states. >>
is that the republicans now that he got reelectedded. >> suarez: they are just responding to cnn's projection of obama as the winner of the next election. rahm emmanuel, i guess this is a vindicating moment for you, huh? >> not for me. it's a labor of love for my friend and our president. a labor of love. i have to tell you the mayor said to me just before we go on the air, i have to go back to my wife when the president is declared. i'm sorry you're still here with me but we're almost done. what does this change? >> given the candidates could not have been different clearer about their differences for the country and the direction, you have probably some areas where there's more energy for the president than there was in '08. the american people are ready for his leadership, his policy directives. he wants the republicans to work with him. you cannot continue to obstruct and take immigration reform. the republicans stay on the course of obstruction, they will be a minority party nationally. it's wrong for the country and wrong for them politically. >> suarez: mayor rahm emmanuel of chicago thanks for
. perhaps you'd like to share with us your thoughts, your experience. did i see you on cnn one night as you were working with your constituents, trying to meet the disaster in your area. mr. pallone: i want to thank my colleague from california for having this special order and talking about the hurricane damage and what needs to be done in the future. i have to say that the damage to my district was catastrophic . we had many towns where initially at least it looked like the majority of the homes and businesses were wiped out. now, when we go back and look again, some of them can be saved. but we're talking about thousands of people who lost their homes and many of others who lost their businesses. it really created a humanitarian crisis in that first week or so because we were trying to get fema in with the disaster recovery centers and with the red cross and the salvation army. and really over the first week the main concern was just humanitarian, trying to find shelter for people, trying to make sure they had food and water and clothes. but i have to say the response was overwhelming. s
